Sweet dreams

Another candid street shot from Shanghai, and my 15th photograph to reach the Flickr Explore pages of 500 best shots of the day. The people in Shanghai really can sleep any time, any place, which makes for some nice photo opportunities. This one received a comment which may have been the most complimenting one I ever got: "I find I look at your pictures these days as documentary or journalism, rather than simply photographs. I mean that as a compliment, but these images seem to transcend mere imagery and have something to say. These are affecting pictures".
